Abstract

The use in the university of new teaching resources by e-learning, is becoming in a common practice, encouraging student participation, and improving academic achievement in learning the subject. An experience in the Safety and Hygiene course of Electronic Engineering degree, at the University of Cordoba –Spain-, has been developed by using different techniques like discussion forums, online quizzes, and a novel and powerful tool: a set of virtual laboratories about noise and vibrations at labour environment which are based on internet. These virtual laboratories promote the learning by different viewpoints like theoretical training, legal knowledge, learning videos, self-training exercises and simulation of use and working of real equipment for field measurement. These virtual laboratories had been evaluated by students who use them, being the results which are reflected in this work, highly satisfactory.
